    Hi Susan!
    Well first of all I loved your post. As a Seventh Day Adventist, I am used to the Sabbath and have been practicing it for years now. It was a little ‘weird’ in the beginning, not knowing what to do with all those hours. Soon I started to enjoy those hours though, and now is such a part of my week that I can’t live without. I even breathe deeper in the Sabbath! For us, Sabbath is a steady period of time, which runs between Friday sunset (in which we do a small sunset worship) and Saturday sunset. Many people (from outside) think that Sabbath is a day in which “you can’t do anything”, but once you start enjoying the Sabbath hours, you realize that you either force yourself to not do certain things, or soon you are not keeping the Sabbath anymore. Life is a never ending list of things to do, so if you don’t make it purposely, you are soon swallowed by the urgent tasks. And if our God provided the weekly rest for us, that is because He knows how important it is to stop our daily ‘marathon’ to rest and get close to Him.
    The Sabbath is a gift for the humanity!

    Ditto Mariana on the SDA Sabbath keeping history at my house. It blesses my heart to see Sabbath coming to the forefront in the Christian world. I’m seeing it more and more and can personally attest to the blessing of keeping a Sabbath. I think for those of us in the SDA world it’s been a bit of a journey and effort to keep the Sabbath in a positive mainframe and really simplify life. For those of us in active ministry and small children in tow it’s often rather tricky to keep the Sabbath the way we’d really like to when we’re sometimes busier on the Sabbath than any other day of the week with church services etc.

    Over the years God’s made it clear to me that in my life it’s about practicing Kingdom living. In other words, a day to practice what it will be like to dwell in His presence and not worry about all the little details and what-ifs that will be non-existent when we get to experience life in heaven. So I do my best to rely solely on Him and not stress or worry about things on Sabbath even when I’m very busy. I prepare as best I can and then I try to just let God take the wheel and direct and provide for me on Sabbath. There have been times when I haven’t been able to pre-prepare a meal and I’ve given it to Him and asked Him to provide. Wouldn’t you know it, we usually find ourselves unexpectedly invited to someone’s home for lunch on those Sabbaths! His goodness just tickles me.

    I can’t tell you what a difference it makes for me to have those Sabbath hours. Thanks for sharing your Sabbath-keeping journey with us Susan! I believe you will be amply blessed for reserving that time with God for you and your family.
